Picking myself up off the ground, brushing off as much of the dust as I could, my initial thoughts were those of embarrassment. Getting injured abroad is a worry, but this time I discovered my ability to carry on regardless, as well as the amazing services of the NHS back in the UK.
Medical emergencies when I’m in a developing country like Kenya have always been a fear of mine. On Sunday it became a reality. But was it really that bad? From the fears of the illness to fears of hospital standards, there was a lot on my mind. Yet good things can always come from those difficult situations.
